Mechanical Ventilation Epidemiology in Argentina.

How is the epidemiology of mechanically ventilated patients in the intensive care units of Argentina?


Mechanical ventilation is an indispensable tool in life support and one of the interventions that characterizes intensive care units (ICU).

Epidemiological studies have allowed us to improve knowledge and optimize the treatment of patients with acute respiratory failure.

In Latin America the epidemiological data of mechanical ventilation is poor.

Primary goal of this national, observational, prospective, multicentric epidemiological study: to analyze the survival and describe epidemiological features of patients receiving mechanical ventilation in the Intensive Care Units of Argentina.

Evaluation of a New Mechanical Ventilation Weaning Strategy for Patients With Altered Level of Consciousness

The purpose of this study is to determine if a weaning strategy from artificial ventilation governs by respiratory behaviour status assessed by our method is safe enough.

Proportional Assist Ventilation vs Pressure Support Ventilation

In this study, we want to compare two different kinds of artificial ventilation to see if one encourages faster weaning from breathing support and if one provides better sleep quality. The...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Artificial respiration (RESPIRATION, ARTIFICIAL) using an oxygenated fluid.

Any method of artificial breathing that employs mechanical or non-mechanical means to force the air into and out of the lungs. Artificial respiration or ventilation is used in individuals who have stopped breathing or have RESPIRATORY INSUFFICIENCY to increase their intake of oxygen (O2) and excretion of carbon dioxide (CO2).

The artificial substitution of heart and lung action as indicated for HEART ARREST resulting from electric shock, DROWNING, respiratory arrest, or other causes. The two major components of cardiopulmonary resuscitation are artificial ventilation (RESPIRATION, ARTIFICIAL) and closed-chest CARDIAC MASSAGE.

Techniques for administering artificial respiration without the need for INTRATRACHEAL INTUBATION.

The act of breathing with the LUNGS, consisting of INHALATION, or the taking into the lungs of the ambient air, and of EXHALATION, or the expelling of the modified air which contains more CARBON DIOXIDE than the air taken in (Blakiston's Gould Medical Dictionary, 4th ed.). This does not include tissue respiration (= OXYGEN CONSUMPTION) or cell respiration (= CELL RESPIRATION).
